SALT CONVEYOR - Torrevieja

SALT CONVEYOR - Torrevieja

This is the converyor belt which loads the ships. It comes from the salt lakes outside of town and goes under roads houses etc etc until it arrives at the port. You can taste the salt in the air.

I actually live just down the road from there in Torrevieja! I understand that this is the largest exporting port for salt in the world.
On the run up to winter 1000's of tonnes are exported to Norway, and there are continuous vessels from Wilson Line loading there. This not the Ellerman Wilson Line but the Norwegian company, who seem to have a very large fleet of vessels.

Morning Clancy,

I wish I was there at this minute. Back in UK and suffering with the horrible weather. Heading South again soon for some sun.
Happy New Year
Neville
